I wish I had more interesting things to blog about.

i want a boy who loves his kitty

feeling shit- get a hair cut

I decided I'm going to get my fringe cut again because a hair cut tricks your mind into thinking everything is better.

Sometimes I just don't know. I don't know why I read all these books only to create false realities in my head about scenarios that will simply never happen.

day-to-day dreariness

I'm working 5 days in a row this week and dealing with old grumpy people is really starting to wear off my always-happy-work-face. It'd be so sweet if someone came in and actually just had a good ol' chat to me while I make the coffee because it gets seriously lonely behind that machine.. At least I only worked the afternoon today so I went with mum to the Sandgate op shops which generously gave me plenty of goodies at cheap prices. Sandgate is a very cute town and for some reason I always imagined it to be industrial but it wasn't so.. that was good? Mitch and Marty are coming over now to watch horror movies in this rainy mysterious weather so I best be off. I hope everyone is reading a tone of books and watching so many movies that you are daily visiting megavideo or video ezy. Goodnight my virtual friends and family.

fascinated by fear

I have come to the realisation that what fascinates me most is the things that scare the hell out of me. I always seem to be the most interested in photos of people sitting on the edge of cliffs or of sharks or space or snakes because that is the closest I ever hope to be to such a thing. Deep water scares me so unbelievably much. To me, there is nothing worst than diving down deep to a place that is completely invisible from land. Although I am not afraid of death, if anything I'm too curious about what happens after death to be afraid of the actual dieing part. Unless there's pain which of course I'd be a bit scared of then.. anyway this is getting very wordy.. moral being.. if you have any cool pictures of freaky shit feel free to send them! :)

Unity, Fear and Unknown

life may be sad but it's always beautiful

I wish I had an elegant last name to go with my first name, Anna Karina sounds so much better than Annie Hickling.. uh. I also absouletly adore the quote, "life may be sad but it's always beautiful". I often find myself watching depressing things and feeling sad with life but at the same time thinking that it is kinda beautiful in a heartbreaking way to be upset. You are the most real when you're sad because you let down your boundaries. You don't care and for a few seconds, minutes, hours or even days you just ride out every emotion rather than only the emotions you think you should feel.

middle aged women wearing condom hats

I apologize for the lack of posting this past week, I'd say that block exams is my excuse but lets be honest I haven't spent every waking moment studying in fact not nearly enough waking moments studying. Not many 'waking' moments in general. Lots of sleeping..

Anyway, I have had a shitload of inspiring moments over the past week that I have been yearning to blog about and here's the first. Middle aged women wearing condom hats. You may ask, excuse me annie? What on earth brought you to that "inspiring" conclusion? Well, I'll start from the beginning..

Last Saturday night I stayed at home to "study" but I actually just watched True Blood all night..
Anyway so around midnight (time seriously flies when you're watching vampire porn.. I have a theory on that that I'll talk about at a later date) my mother gets home and plops down on my bed to recall her events of the night. So in a brief summary.. She went to a friends hens night that involved an 'amazing race quest' through the valley where they had to find things such as random condoms, numbers under beer canisters and kiss security guards. So I'm laying in my bed listening to these strange unfolding tales from good ol' Ju when it hits me.. It's the Valley Fiesta tonight where various people I know are there tonight/today and there was my mum and the rest of her middle-aged friends running around kissing security guards with condom hats.

Some may get embarrassed at this point but instead all I could think was this would make the best chapter in a novel or something or a movie or maybe just a blog post (case and point..). I find it the most inspiring tacky but awesome story I have heard in a long time! Thanks Mum :D

powering through books almost as fast as i eat a box of coco pops

  • Frankenstein is done and dusted. THANK FUCKING GOD.
  • Also just finished Last Chance by Sarah Desson which was cute and nice to read as it's about a waitress and I'm a waitress! Not a huge similarity really as I suppose waitressing is quite common..
  • Now onto a book called Wintergirls which is really strangely written and I probably would've shut it already except I 1. have only ever once shut a book before finishing and that was when I was young and naive 2. I have a soft spot for weird things (yes holly I'm discreetly referring to you.)
On the topic of holly, my lovely best friend is flying off to England in less than a week and I just want to publicly say that I WILL BLOODY MISS YA! And that I really hope you buy me a good birthday present over there muaha.

Or my heart? Or maybe just everyone's hearts as you are the. greatest. Once again kudos to holly for introducing me to them!

lil bit shell shocked

So they have this new thing on Blogger where you can view all these statistics about your blog and A LOT more people than I ever imagined read this! Wow! Like, I've been sitting here a good half hour now with my mouth open. People in Canada and UK and Arabia! Anyway, I'm feeling pretty touched now so I just want to say thank you to those who read this- especially you foreign bloggees ;) and I'm going to try keep you distracted even more than ever!

currently lovin

Picnics, Basket Bikes (on the note- I found a basket today to attach to my bike!), the warm weather, moving on to bigger and better things, cute animals, pancakes, film, tea and milkshakes, vintage sunnies and movement photos.

just over a month till i can go for my learners!

my latest virtual and fictional escapes

Hunger Games 3, True Blood, Linger. I have consumed myself in these 2 books and 1 tv series everyday for the past month. Hunger Games I knocked off in 24 hours- so if that is any kind of indication how great the novel is then I don't think I even need to tell you to go buy the series. True Blood I'm up to season 3 and very much so addicted. Vampire porn eats school work most days. Linger is the latest book I finished which is the sequel to Shiver- I have to say I preferred Shiver more but it is still a beautifully written novel that is enjoyable to escape in. Once I finish True Blood I'll watch the last season of Entourage then I'm onto Weeds!
